App note: Forced air convection and heat sinking for power supplies


Application note from Aimtec discusses about two ways for taking away heat on power supplies. Link here

When evaluating the operating temperature ranges of power supplies one must consult component’s datasheets. Datasheets state a “usable” operating temperature range typically given at full output load. In order to reach the upper limit of the temperature ranges without derating the load, some additional heat dissipation may be required.
